Mortenson Center for International Library Programs


Mortenson Center for International Library Programs

The Mortenson Center for International Library Programs was created in 1991 with a gift from C. Walter and Gerda B. Mortenson to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Center promotes international peace through library training programs.[1][2]

The Mortenson Center has worked with several grant agencies, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to develop training programs for librarians in developing countries.[3] They have also worked with the Carnegie Corporation and Mellon Foundation to support education efforts in African libraries.[4]
